Hi Scott, In truth, I have cobol programs running on AS/400 and a package called Guidance running on the client side (desktop/Win). This package performs the translation of the screens got from its internal tn5250 emulator (connected to the AS/400 with TCP/IP) to a windows look, using Visual Basic components. The problem is that this package just works as a 3270 or 5250 terminal. I want to compile my cobol programs in my Linux box and use the Linux in place of AS/400 to serve screens to the clients running Guidance, without any change in the client side structure. Can you get me the Mike Madore email or the "tn5250d" URL ?
